There’s life in those old bones. Cosy up with the dinosaurs this winter as the Sedgwick Museum does Christmas with a twist. With live music and spectacular lighting, it’s the perfect way to kick off your festive season.

For one night only, performers from We Are Sound bring their eclectic take on winter revelry to the Museum after-hours. Cambridge’s maverick sound collective specialise in “reworking brilliant tracks by brilliant bands”. Explore the specially-lit galleries and expect the unexpected, with tracks ranging from contemporary folk to electro-swing.

Ticket price includes a complimentary glass of prosecco upon arrival.
